Notes:
Another busy day at work. I helped several customers, wrote a couple of documents, and also got several little items crossed off my list. the big thing I did was clear more space on the HD by deleting some stuff out of it. It made the computer work much faster.

R and I got into it a little bit last night. I’ve mentioned that I don’t watch a lot of scary stuff and the reason is that I just don’t handle it well. R. was watching Letters from Iwo Jima. There’s one scene where a dog ends up getting shot because it “a threat” to Japanese Army Communication. I got really upset and walked out of the room. I don’t deal well this kind of behavior/scene. The implied violence was just too much for me.

R thinks I need to be more dispassionate about such things. He thinks I should celebrate the one person who had the heart to do the right thing in the scene. I don’t want to be dispassionate about such things. To me, to be dispassionate about such a scene would be disconnected from my feelings and the world around me.
